Snakes are active. Think twice about walking along bush tracks, along creeks and rivers, through grassland and paddocks. Not worth the risk.
Grass seeds. Grasses are now drying out with seeds ready to drop. Walking through paddocks, reserves, walking tracks etc. is where your dog can pick these nuisances up. Long coat or stock coat are both at risk. Give your mate a
good check up after a walk, between toes, under arms and ears are good spots. Seeds are bad news for dogs and can cause serious problems.
Heat stress especially for puppies can be a silent enemy. A very good article from the Quarterly National Review
Make sure your dog has plenty of shade available and lots of fresh water which may mean multiple and stable water containers for active puppies.

The Northern Branch is the only metropolitan venue of the GSDCV to train on Saturday afternoons. This gives members from other Branches the flexibility of an alternative site when the situation demands a different day. We have a group of very experienced instructors who can give guidance in general obedience for nine week old puppies through to older mature dogs, obedience, trialing, Rally O, tracking and endurance.
Training times are: Obedience classes commence at 2.00pm, With regard to show training, we are not currently conducting classes.
We do encourage members to arrive about 30 mins prior to take advantage of the socialisation that occurs before classes.
